Gas Approaches 5 Dollars a Gallon in Twin Falls, Idaho
What goes up must come down are some lyrics from a song I remember as a boy. Does it still apply when it comes to gas prices? I saw a price of almost $4.60 a gallon when I drove past the Twin Falls Walmart during the wee hours of Wednesday morning. A few blocks down the street I almost had a coronary. There was a price for regular gas at an Oasis of $4.75.9 for the same grade. I’m extrapolating but without some sudden drop in demand, I suppose we’ll sail past five dollars a gallon sometime between the middle to end of June.
How many people can currently afford the price? I’m telling you, the center won’t much longer hold.

Meanwhile, our national competitors are looking to lock up oil reserves in what has been a contested Arctic region. Do they know something that we don't? Man, we’re getting played! There’s a great wealth transfer going on and it doesn’t benefit American working men and women. Do we even have a champion anymore?
I'll Take Mean Tweets

What am I missing?
